Emelia Sullivan and Andy Dalton have been friends since they were five years old—the day his family moved in to the house next door. Connected by bedroom windows that faced each other and a treehouse they shared in the backyard, the two became lifelong best friends. Emelia loved Andy with all her heart.
But not like she loved his older brother, Samuel.
Tall, handsome, and the absolute best at everything he ever did, Samuel Dalton captured Emelia’s heart without even trying. He was her first, and longest-lasting, crush.
Children grow up and move away from home. With effort, some ties are strengthened by time. Some are frayed, on the verge of breaking.
For Emelia, coming home to see Andy over summer break is easy. Finding out Samuel is home for the summer too, however, provides a challenge she is determined to overcome. Will a friendly competition for the title of “Best Man” help Samuel see Emelia is not the same little girl he left behind years ago?
No matter how long she’s been away, home is the place Emelia can count on, where everything always stays the same.
Until it all changes.

Title: Barefoot Chaos
Series: The Beach Squad Series
Author: Marika Ray
Genre: Contemporary Rom/Com
Release Date: April 19, 2018
Hessa and Kai couldn’t be more different if they tried. Hessa is a high school teacher who loves her job getting seniors ready to head out into the real world. Her evenings are spent grading papers and falling in love with her latest book boyfriend because she believes she’ll never find a guy like that in real life.
Kai is a lifeguard and he loves his job. He’s not looking for a big high powered career and he is grateful for every single day he gets to be close to or in the big vast ocean. The only thing missing is a woman, specifically a woman who wants what he wants rather than one who wants to change him and his goals.
When Kai pays for her hot chocolate, everything changes for them both.
Barefoot Chaos was a good read, not like what I’m used to reading but I did have a good time reading Marika Ray’s beach read. What I enjoyed most about this story is the inherent message that both Kai and Hessa learn which is being happy with who you are and finding someone who likes and wants you just as you are.
Amazon Customer – “I want my own beach squad!”
Amazon Customer – “What do you get when you mix an uptight teacher with a laidback lifeguard? I can tell you it’s not what you’re expecting.”
Amazon Customer – “I love the Beach Squad series and the latest book “Barefoot Chaos”, is a love story about being happy with who you are and finding your soulmate who will always be by your side.”
Chaos – a state of complete disorder and confusion; unpredictable; a gaping void
I spend my days a buttoned up schoolteacher coordinating the CareDare program for my high school English students and my nights with my book boyfriends, not daring to think I could procure one in real life. It’s precise, it’s controlled….and boring as hell.
The tide shifts and I find myself with a hippie lifeguard who provokes me as much as he turns me on, a Senior class in upheaval, a crazy Beach Squad that wants to befriend me, a wild twin sister back in my business, and a public challenge to expose my long-held secret for the greater good.
Do I deduce this chaos is all serendipitous, meant to thrust me into my true place in the world? Ultimately, I have to decide if I can kick off my shoes, dig my toes in the sand, and trust in love again.
Marika Ray spends her time behind a computer crafting stories, walking the beaches of southern California scoping out the lifeguards, and making healthy food for her kids and husband whether they like it or not. Prior to writing novels, Marika held various jobs in the finance industry, with private start-up companies, and then in health & fitness. Cats may have nine lives, but Marika believes everyone should have nine careers to keep things spicy.
Marika enjoys writing all types of fiction novels, based on what inspires her. Right now she’s working on stand-alone romances in the Beach Squad series, all about California lifeguards and their equally fearless women. Moderate suspense, a splash of humor, and lots of steamy romance…all with the beautiful ocean as a relaxing backdrop!
